for the economy, but not enough to pull it off. >> paul: steve, let me, is there a silver lining here at all that maybe the public will begin to understand that you can't reduce the deficit with a tax increase? you just can't do it. this represents what, 600 billion dollars they say over ten years, that's about 6, 7% max of what the deficit is? >> great point, paul. let me step back a minute and say that you and i and dan and eric will lived through the budget deals for 25, 30 years, this is the first and almost none of them have worked out very he well. but this is the first budget deal i can recall dating back to the early reagan years, there wasn't a pretense of cutting spending. usually $3 of phony tax cuts for-- >> there was a tax increase in the deal with extension of unemployment. and now i think the republicans are on a little higher ground as we go forward. you saw president obama in his little press conference after he signed the bill saying this is only the first of many tax increases to come in 2013. i believe the republicans are not going to budge an inch on that, i think they'r
. as steve just said, president obama is saying he wants more tax increases. there is no solution on the other side. there is no certainty out there. people are looking at very expensive obamacare and no way to pay for it. >> paul: if we can afford it after paying your tax bill, you might want to hire a lobbyist. it was awarded with $400 million in tax breaks in fiscal cliff deal. we'll tell you who the other big winners were when we come back. >> president obama for his part praised this week's huge new tax increase saying that millionaires and billionaires will finally pay their fair share under the fiscal cliff compromise, that is unless they were smart enough to hire a lobbyist. those folks managed to get their taxes reduced in the deal, as congress handed out 78 million dollars in tax write-offs for nascar track owners 222 million dollars in tax rebates forum distillers, and 430 million in tax credit for hollywood producers, and billions more in green energy give aways. so, mary, i thought this was about social justice, the rich paying their fair share. what happened? >> yes

.s. economy in 2013, wall street journal columnist and deputy editor dan henninger, mary o'grady and steve moore. let's go to you first, steve. based on our conversations this week, you like this deal a little more than do i. why don't you make the best case for it, for the deal? >> well, paul, this was for republicans a kind of eat your spinach moment. i just don't see any other alternative to what happened. and look, i think this is a rancid deal for so many reasons, especially the fact i think it's harmful to the economy. i guess my point, paul, would be i don't see republicans had much choice. i mean, you talk to john boehner and you talk to mitch mcconnell for six, seven weeks the president would simply not budge one inch on cutting spending and had no interest in doing that. the republicans believed and i think they're probably right if they'd gone into 2013 without the tax issue resolved they'd be pummelled day after day by the presid
shows. joining us is the president of strategies and steve hayes are, for a fair and balanced debate. john rockerts pointed out, there are no fewer than 10 bills under consideration in the house of representatives right now to oppose some sort of new gun control from limiting the size of clips to resurrecting the assault ban. a working group led by vice-president biden is proposing these. let's look at what the washington post rer reports, a working group led by vice-president biden is considering measures that would require universal background checks for firearms buyers, track the movement and sale of weapons through a national database, strengthen mental health checks and stricter penalties for carrying guns near schools or giving them to minors. would that help? >> some of them will. i think some of them won't. i think the fact of the matter is -- let me state clearly where i am coming from, someone who lived in a home with a man who should not have guns and lived through the incident of someone trying to kill somebody and married to a former nra board member. so vicome to this f
's health in numbers. unitedhealthcare. >> steve ellis. >> you were talking about the flood shuns program and the problems with the flood insurance program and one of the thigs that's interesting when you look at the senate bill is that for sandy relief is that it requires that the corps review its existing projects that were built to provide flood protection and storm damage redux and in six months come back and tell them how they performed but this three months they're start to building new projects so we're essentially, most likely going to put back into place spending billions of dollars, virtually the same structure. we're going to rebuild in a very similar manner with beach replenishment projects and berms and dunes that will keep in harm's way and that's been the problem with our flood plain policy and even with the flood insurance program, one of the things is that the only team you have a mandatory purchase requirement is if you're in the 100-year flood plain. >> explain that steps. >> exactly. it doesn't mean it floods once every 100 years. i had means there's a 1% chance every

baltimore, a special thank-you to all our men and women serving in our military. steves: we're in rothenburg, germany's ultimate walled city. in the middle ages, when frankfurt and munich were just wide spots on the road, rothenburg was one of germany's largest cities, with a whopping population of 6,000. today, even with its crowds and overpriced souvenirs, i love this place. during rothenburg's heyday -- that was about 1200 to 1400 -- it was the intersection of two great trading routes -- prague to paris and hamburg to venice. but today, the great trade is tourism. rothenburg is a huge hit with shoppers. true, this is a great place to buy cuckoo clocks, steins, and dirndls, but see the town first. most of the buildings were built by 1400. like many medieval towns, the finest and biggest houses were built along herrengasse, named for the herren, or the wealthy class. the commoners built higgledy-piggledy farther from the center, near the walls. hanging shop signs advertise what they sold -- knives, armor, bread, whatever. rothenburg's wall, with its beefy fortifications and intimidating gat

wins with joe montana, steve young and coming down market street. as we did with the giants a year and a half to two years ago. these were incredible inspirational opportunities we have, now hosting a super bowl. being part of a bay area effort to bring this incredibly helpful event that isn't just one few hours worth of games. there's all kinds of events that happen during super bowl week. i believe that the bulk of them will be hosted here in san francisco because this will be where we reflect strong infrastructure of tourism, where we host things and do well. this is what san francisco is about. we have an incredible committee of people that have volunteered and put forth i want to be part of this team effort to, build a bay area super bowl event that will be not only long lasting for the sports itself but with daniel's leadership and supervisor feral that's been such an incredible partner in the dialogue to help us form our ideas. and for somebody who's spnt his personal time creating the educational links between our school district and kids and parents, to created a decisiona

steve katz. why do you support that the county don't ought to be giving this information to the press? >> i think that what the journal news has done is so irresponsible. we've seen it already in westchester and in rockland, you've got, for example, a woman who is in my district called up, she has been plagued by a stalker for years. she moved for two years, she was safe, hasn't heard a thing. after this list was published, two days later she received a hundred phone calls that were hangups. that's horrifying. and so, that's just one example what we're hearing in rockland county, you're hearing about law enforcement agencies and corrections officers who the inmates are telling them that we now know where you live. >> let's just be honest, the journal news didn't do this in order to enhance public safety, this was an editorial of sorts designed to make the point that gps are scary and legal gun ownership is a threat to our safety? >> worse than that they basically made a dream map for perpetrators, for criminals, for stalkers. this is an interactive map that shows where they live. you
